Rob Rouse
One of comedy’s most lively, loveable and dynamic performers, Rob won Channel 4’s Prestigious So You Think You’re Funny competition at the Edinburgh Festival in way back in 1998. He’s one of our best comic storytellers, has performed all over the world and works long form narratives into hard-hitting, uncompromising hilarious tales filled with warmth and a sense of compassion for our collective human frailties.

Karen Bayley
The first ever female winner of the prestigious Comedy Store King Gong award, Karen was also a BBC New Comedy Awards Showcase final and Babycham Funny Women finalist, all when launching onto the UK comedy circuit in 2003. Brummie Karen has quickly picked up a whole host of rave reviews, comedy awards and references from her peers. Her material surprises with inspired and sparkling punchlines, with comic timing that is rarely less than brilliant. Already a rising star on TV and radio, she has appeared on The Last Word, Take The Mike, Sex on the Job, The Fred Macauley Show and a regular on Radio 5 Live.

Francis Foster
Francis Foster is a comedian who has been performing regularly since 2012. He came 3rd in the prestigious NATYS and recently supported Eddie Izzard on his Force Majeure tour performing his set entirely in Spanish. Francis now plays all the best comedy clubs throughout the U.K. Occasionally he makes people laugh. Francis is also a regular co host on TalkSport and delights in winding up Arsenal fans.

PRE COMEDY NOSH AND DRINKS
From 6.00pm until 7.15 the Apollo Hotel are offering HAPPY HOUR AND A QUARTER! That’s 50% off all drinks  – Hoorah!

and…  *fanfare*  There’s even a £10 Curry Club.  What do you get for that?

A choice of 3 curries  – served with Pilau Rice, Naan Bread and a small beer or glass of wine.  The Apollo are getting into the spirit of comedy with the following curries –

The mild one (Kenny Everett) ‘It’s all in the best possible taste.’
The hot one (Del Boy) ‘Lovely jubbly’ 
The hotter one (Catherine Tate) ‘How very dare you!’

There will always be a vegetarian option too.  If you’re a Curry Dodger (hard to resist a poppadom though, isn’t it?) just choose something from the main menu at usual prices.

Comedy Curry Club is usually fuller than a plumber’s tool bag, so it’s best to book.   Contact The Apollo on 01256 796700.
